Food Free Moving: What to Do with Foodstuff When Moving

Neighbors, relatives, and friends

There are always many people who will take the pantry suppliers joyfully. Yet, before doing it, you have to check the expiration dates of the products.

Local food banks

There are always longing for new stocks. All you have to do is to gather eatable items and deliver them to the proper location. Sometimes foodbanks pick up the foodstuff by themselves. You can even ask your moving company to do it. As a rule, the movers have necessary contact information and closely cooperate with such organizations.

Eat it!

It sounds funny but very often the greater part of the pantry storage can be eaten in a few days. You can try to refuse attending cafes and eateries for a couple of days. Your supplies will vanish in no time. If the food stock is really large, it’s possible to organize “cuisine battles”. Their aim is the use of as many suppliers as possible. It’s a funny and effective way to get rid of pantry stock.
